Oi Vay! It's No Longer Cool To Be Country?

Oh my God! The sky is falling!
Would you give me a freakin' break? Jimmy Carter is a man of principle who speaks his mind. Always has, probably always will. He has spent a lifetime being a conciliatory force between warring factions, so now when he takes a politically incorrect, yet somewhat intelligent stand on the modern Israeli/Arab conflict, now suddenly all those Jewish brethren who were happy to tag the Carter Center in their volunteer resumes for untold profitable benefit, now they find the man's politics untenable? CNN spins this as a mass exodus of staunch Carter follwers

ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) -- Former President Jimmy Carter's controversial book and subsequent remarks about the Israel-Palestinian conflict have prompted the resignations of 14 people from an advisory board of the Carter Center, the 25-year-old Atlanta-based humanitarian organization.

Come on!! Read the names for Pete's sakes! Abrams, Berman, Coles, Golden, Hertz, Kaufman, Levetan, Levy, Novak,Schwartz , Selig, Steinberg, Solomon, this could be the invite list to Hllywood premere, or a ritzy Bah Mitzvah! And this is shocking news to CNN? So what are they saying here, that the Jewish community needs no habitat houses? That the followers of Abraham have no interest in South America or the Carribean? That possibly the prior "world serving politics" of President Carter are not in the best interest of Jerusalem, or any interest at that? Well I for one say that my fellow sons of Abraham, Issac and Ismail (we all do not far too far from the same tree folks) can plainly pack up there toys and promptly go away, but just remember this folks...When it came to a message to be sent, it was definately a race card played. For shame.
